Being an Alpha Delta Pi means giving back. A chapter of our own personal philanthropy, the Ronald McDonald House Charities, has a location right around the corner from our house which means we are able to give our time as well as our fundraising efforts. Whether it be volunteer exchanges with fraternities, fundraiser feeds at our chapter house or craft nights at the RMHC, we at Alpha Delta Pi love to give back. Of course it is always fun to participate in other philanthropies as well! For the RMHC as well as other organizations, we have raised over $27,000 and given countless hours in the past year alone.
Not only does Alpha Delta Pi host our own philanthropy events, but we also love participating in other Greek houses’ philanthropies! We believe it is important to support all Greek chapters and their philanthropic endeavors throughout the University of Washington community. Our sisters are involved in many different charity organizations within the University of Washington, including the UW Dream Project and Best Buddies. Our chapter also participates in Relay for Life at UW, Dance Marathon UW, Seattle's Hot Chocolate Run, and many sorority and fraternity philanthropy weeks.
New Philanthropy week cominG fall 2020
Director of Philanthropy
Lilly is hard at work for Fall 2020! We're sad her amazing new ideas for our philanthropy week could not be held this spring. Check back this summer for more updates!
What's the biggest philanthropic event of the year? Our annual Golf Tournament of course! For the past five years, Alpha Delta Pi has worked hard to establish our new tradition of hosting the Lion's Share Challenge Golf Tournament. Members of the Greek, UW, and Seattle communities participate in the tournament and a silent auction. Proceeds from the event are then donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western Washington & Alaska.
